And not just because of its visible rivets
A new LC 500 will set you back at least $92,995 USD, in case you need a donor car. The Japanese tuner’s first body kit for the car includes front, side, and rear diffusers, a big ducktail rear spoiler, and super wide fenders bolted on with visible rivets. Très JDM.
The car is also slammed to the pavement and will make you cringe at the sight of a speed bump outside of your local 7-11.
The package retails for $15,560 USD in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) or $19,440 USD for one made with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP).
If you are on a budget, the second version of the wide body kit includes similar modifications with a rear wing variant. It sells for $13,380 USD in FRP or $16,740 USD for CFRP bits.
Both kits include lots of subtle fan boy graphics and a shout out to John Lennon on the doors that reads, “Imagine all the people living life in peace.” We don’t know what that has to do with a highly modified Lexus, but are those immortal lyrics ever not appropriate?
Quad tailpipe tips in electric blue complete the treatment. Wheels, rims, and suspension mods are extra—way extra.
Under the hood, the LC 500 packs a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that’s good for 471 hp and 379 lb-ft of torque. The V-8 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It can sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
Inside, the stock LC interior is pretty carbon fiber- and Alcantara-heavy to start with, but we imagine an upgrade resembling the Jungle Room at Graceland would give this Liberty Walk Lexus a look that’s fit for a king. Or maybe even a comic book superhero.
